Centuries old farm houses, "Wallhecken" (hedges on embankments) and scattered defence embankments characterize the Münsterland park-like countryside, with its intersperced woods.

Tracts of Altenberge are nature preserves; especially the environs around "Rösteberg" in the farming community of Hohenhorst is an attractive recreational area.

More than 30 km of circular walking paths as well as 56 km of country roads appeal to hikers and cyclists who can explore the countryside. In the summer covered wagen rides and guided bike tours to various sites are on offer. There are three places to stay with a total of 102 beds and 20 restaurants, inns and cafes.
